I mentioned that when Gerard Cosmetics had their $39 special for 4 lippies plus free shipping, I jumped on it. You can't get a better deal than that! For lip glosses I got Cocoa Bean and Plum Crazy. For lipsticks I bought Nude and 1995. I thought that these colors would be pretty basic and work out well for me.
I am in the process of returning them. Yes. I said it. I hated them.
Well, not hated. 1995 was a decent lipstick. It was ok. The color was fine once you put a balm on (preferably before). I could have worked with that lipstick and not thought too much about it. But, the other lipstick, Nude, well, that was a chalk color. I mean, it was a pink chalk color but still a chalk color. It was void of anything that would make it nice on my lips. I knew after one application that it was going to a friend -- a very PALE friend. Still, that would have been ok.
|I know Plum Crazy looks plum here but trust, |
it does not come off plum on the lips.
The lip glosses were not my friends. They are thick and not hydrating at all. They are long wearing for a lip gloss but I couldn't stand them. They weren't comfortable on my lips.
And the colors... Cocoa Bean was a blah brown color. I expected that. I used a red lip liner under it to bring out some color (it didn't work). It was ok. But, Gerard Cosmetics is plum crazy if they think Plum Crazy is a plum color. Mine was slightly lighter than the Cocoa Bean. I mean there was NOTHING plum about it. That was not ok.
After trying on the Plum Crazy lip gloss, I instantly took it off and began the return process. 3 just okay's and 1 hell naw means I need a refund of some kind. I was just not a fan.
Have any of you tried Gerard Cosmetics? Where you a fan? Honestly, I've only seen YouTubers that liked it. Are there any non YouTubers out there that like it? What colors did you pick?
